AllMusic Review by

This double CD includes remixed material from his previous album, Siempre Es Hoy. It's quite eclectic material, featuring the work of Kinky, Nortec, Leo García, Cerati himself, Capri, and Wechsel Garland, among others. The original Siempre Es Hoy had 16 tracks, but on this album you will find remixes of just 11 of them. So some songs are repeated up to three times. The remixers show themselves to be perhaps a bit too reverent to the original material. The highlights comes from DJ Orange, with his drum'n'bass look at "Altar," and from Capri, which released the potential hit of "Karaoke." "Tu Cicatriz en Mí" gets a peculiar look, since DJ Zuker and Cerati used a recognizable sample from the Pixies' "Bone Machine." Fans may find this useful, but there's very little reason for the merely curious to start here.
